It has been said by many brew masters, “water makes the beer.” We can’t help but agree. This refreshingly light lager is brewed with 25,000 year old iceberg water harvested from Newfoundland’s awe-inspiring icebergs which offer some of the purest water on earth. Incredibly crisp and refreshing light North American style lager. Winner of a bronze medal in the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards ’North American Style -Premium Lager’

Poured a yellow straw color from a blue glass bottle (only reason I gave it a 2 for appearance). This beer really didn’t taste too different from any of the other pale lagers from the big boys. It is kind of expensive for what it is. It poured with also no head and had very little aroma. I suppose this could be refreshing if served as cold as an iceberg on a hot day.

341 ml bottle @ Piatto Pizza St. John's, NL. Pours a very pale yellow with a small, fine white head. Aromas are hard to discern, beer was very cold at first. After slight warming I would describe it as a stale smell. Tastes are light grain with maybe a light hop profile on the back end. Light body, mild bitter feel on the tongue, short finish. Unremarkable light lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Draft - Light sweet almost a touch of grain. Clear straw with a decent white head. Light and sweet with a touch of apple.

It’s an interesting idea and not bad for the style, but certainly isn’t something I’d rush to try.

Cimbasso (772) - - MAY 10, 2016
Sampled on draught at the bar at St. John's International Airport. Served extremely cold in the North American tradition. A light golden colour with a white head. Highly carbonated with some grain aromas. The taste is of sweet malts with a hint of straw followed by a mixture of mild cardboard and bubblegum flavours. Quite clean tasting and refreshing but little depth to the flavour.

Aroma of mild malt. Pale yellow color. Starts off sort of sweetish, finishes sort of skunky. Yep thats it.

probstblueribbon (3722) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
341 ml bottle from a liquor store in Newfoundland via my parents, served cold in a small shaker glass. Faintly metallic with light grainy sweetness, a little bread, faintly sour, possibly a little skunk. Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Sweet grains, faint noble hops, still a touch...sour?; basically dry, low bitterness, slightly sweet, grainy finish. Beatty bottle and concept. Boring beer.
